My beautiful daughter-in-law recently celebrated her birthday and of course we all love to celebrate. We had dinner out with all the kids and both of my 1.5 granddaughters - a great time together as always!
Loni has always been one of my biggest Crafting Cheerleaders, so it's especially fun to make a card for her each year. I also love the new 'My Spin on the Pin' challenge in our scrapbooking group - sure makes it easier to be creative!
This is the pin I used - http://pinterest.com/pin/82331499410733993/ - and here is my card:
Virtually identical to be sure. The Happy Birthday stamp I used is from Morning Star Stamps, the circle punches and white cardstock are Stampin' Up.
The paper is a pretty cool deal. I'm finding that more and more I'm using digital paper and just printing out what I need. It's far cheaper and a lot less to store. All of the pattern paper on this card is in the Go Floral Paper Pack by Studio Basic.
What I did was open a page in Photoshop Elements, then put two inch squares of each of the pattern paper I wanted to use on the page. Print, then cut to fit the openings I had punched in the card. I used dimensionals to pop up that entire layer.
I'm pleased with how this turned out and of course it could be used for any occasion just by using a different sentiment stamp.
Deep Thoughts: "Smile as much as you can, because today is your special day. Happy, happy Birthday to you!
